Increase engine speed using the throttle (16, Fig. 3) until the desired pump pressure is shown on the master pump pressure gauge (1 Fig. 3). NOTE If the master pump gauge (1, Fig. 3) registers vacuum before the desired pressure is reached, it is draining more water than the hydrant can supply. Close the nozzle or use a smaller tip to obtain more pressure. CAUTION When pumping from a hydrant, the Master pump gauge must register 5 PSI or serious damage may occur in the water pump. C. Pumping water from an open body of water. 1. Start engine (refer to section 1). 2. Use 2 1/2" suction line to supply water to the fire truck, connect hose and make sure connections are tight. 3. Before operating from a suction lift, see that the strainer at the lower end of the suction hose is at least two feet  below  the  water  surface.    To  avoid  draining  air,  the  strainer  should  not  rest  on  the  bottom  to  prevent pumping sand and foreign matter. WARNING Excessive sand and foreign matter in water pump will eventually effect pump efficiency. 4. Prime the water pump (refer to para 1). 5. Connect the discharge hose to the required discharge outlet, and open corresponding discharge valve. 6. Increase engine speed using the throttle (16, Fig. 3) until the desired pump pressure is shown on the master pump pressure gauge (1, Fig. 3). 4-4
